About this Wine

'100% whole-bunch fermented and aged in concrete with no oak used at all, this 2018 Syrah is certainly a profound wine marked by its incredible perfume and aromatic complexity.' Greg Sherwood MW 

Tasting notes

'Dark and inky in colour, the nose boasts seductive notes of violets, sweet jasmine, sappy crushed leaves, wood smoke and polished sandalwood that combine with promising aromas of asphalt, melted tar, black olives, cured meats and luscious black berry fruits. The palate is beautifully trim and toned with perfect proportions and silky, elegant savoury tannins that hark back to some of the finest Cote Roties of the Northern Rhone. Medium bodied and seamlessly harmonious in texture, this wine finishes with notes of graphite, black currant herbal tea and crushed blueberries dusted with roughly ground black peppercorn spice. Classical Stellenbosch Syrah delivered with incredible precision, purity and subtlety. A true wine of beauty and thoroughly delicious. Drink now and over the next 8 to 10+ years.' Greg Sherwood MW 

FROM THE PRESS

“Beautifully scented, peppery, peony, dark fruit, light stemmy herbal freshness. Chewy, chalky tannins add to the mouth-watering freshness. So juicy without being simple. Deliciously dry texture. Both refined and full of lively pleasure.”
Julia Harding, JancisRobinson.com
